RMIT University deploys HPE GreenLake


RMIT University has selected HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform to transform its storage capability to support research opportunities, manage online learning, and strengthen the quality of service and delivery of its student body.

The HPE GreenLake deployment sees RMIT eliminate heavy upfront data storage costs and avoid expensive overprovisioning.

“The HPE GreenLake platform facilitates self-service agility allowing us to easily deploy resources, view costs and forecast capacity. We pay only for what we use when we use it, and scale to what we need when we need it,” explains RMIT chief information officer Sinan Erbay.

“Before deploying HPE GreenLake we had ongoing monthly crisis meetings and faced limitations when valued research projects were offered to us. This was stressful,” Erbay recalls.

The HPE GreenLake platform, along with HPE Data Storage solutions, enables the university to overcome the limitations of the large legacy data storage environment.

According to RMIT, this provides agility when there are surges in demand for large research projects. This facilitates RMIT to easily accept major research opportunities and slash provision time for updates and new services from weeks to hours.

For RMIT, the total cost of ownership is better understood and better balanced, and the IT resource effort needed to manage and maintain service delivery was reduced by 50%.

“We’re proud to partner with an innovative and forward-thinking organisation like RMIT. We look forward to the continued partnership and improving the tertiary education experience in Australia,” comments HPE Pointnext services Australia and New Zealand director Patrick Matthews.

“We’re interested in expanding our capabilities with hybrid cloud environments. We are looking at HPE Synergy as the composable, software-defined infrastructure to achieve this. Meanwhile our five-year plan includes large wireless networking and bringing a better understanding of artificial intelligence and machine learning to our student body,” Erbay concludes.

RMIT is a global university with 95,000 students and close to 10,000 staff. Since the start of the pandemic, universities in Australia face ongoing challenges, including a shift to online learning, border closures limiting international student enrolments and impacts to university research and funding.

RMIT’s ambition is to act less as infrastructure managers and focus more on being value enablers for the student body. A large, legacy IT storage system has been obstructing the realisation of this vision. This resulted into labour-intensive processes, costly maintenance bills to support legacy equipment, and preventing RMIT from responding to surges in demand.

RMIT sees its partnership with HPE growing with increased collaboration in innovation ideas and initiatives.
